> ADB runs on the host/local side, and it knows how to forward ports to
devices (typically over USB).  So, we talk to the local ADB port that then
forwards communication to the actual device.  I'll need to have a look at
the guts of it - it might make sense to only use it as a port forwarder and
go with an lldb-platform on the device side and just stick with that.  I'll
have a deeper look at that once I get Android gdbserver (or equivalent)
